A Team of Biohackers Has Figured Out How to Inject Your Eyeballs With Night Vision

I'm not sure I'd like to be the one getting the dose of nightvision.
However this is very cool to see some guys doing some serious science out of their garage.

I wonder if the military is going to swoop in and classify this. If it goes dark you'll definitely know what happened.

The nightbreed eyes there are creepy as hell.



In "people becoming superhuman" news, a small independent research group has figured out how to give humans night vision, allowing them to see over 50 meters in the dark for a short time.

Science for the Masses, a group of biohackers based a couple hours north of Los Angeles in Tehachapi, California, theorized they could enhance healthy eyesight enough that it would induce night vision. To do this, the group used a kind of chlorophyll analog called Chlorin e6 (or Ce6), which is found in some deep-sea fish and is used as an occasional method to treat night blindness.

"Going off that research, we thought this would be something to move ahead with," the lab's medical officer, Jeffrey Tibbetts, told Mic. "There are a fair amount of papers talking about having it injected in models like rats, and it's been used intravenously since the '60s as a treatment for different cancers. After doing the research, you have to take the next step."

To do so, team biochem researcher Gabriel Licina became a guinea pig.

How it happened: With what's basically a really fine turkey baster, Tibbetts slowly dripped 50 microliters of Ce6, an extremely low dose, into Licina's speculum-stretched eyes, aiming for the conjunctival sac, which carried the chemical to the retina.

After looking at his eyes are you sure this isn't some sort of scam. Those look like the eyes of the stereotypical grey to me, I'll bet he's just one of them in disguise.

On a serious note, this is awesome. I wonder if they can formulate a version that can be dropped in with less accuracy required. Like just water it down to the point where it will flow in on its own. I want to play.

I salute you sir.
You are able to conspiracy theorize with the best of them.

That guy's eyes were scary. I wonder if light would hurt your eyes after having it done. I also wonder if it could cause eye damage if they use it for too long.

They're already correcting blindness by hardwiring cameras directly into the visual cortex of the brain.

Soon it'll be available as a camera mounted in a glass eye.

Night Vision contact lenses aren't far away. (That is if they don't already exist and is classified)

But they are, after all, a bunch of guys working out of a garage. So they went out to a dark field and tested Licina's new superpowers.

I would be be very careful about squirting assorted chemicals into the eye. This does not appear to be an actual intraocular injection so i'm wondering whether it is working the way they assume. Article says it somehow reaches the retina from the conjunctiva, but i'm not so sure. The retina is part of the central nervous system and very delicate. Proceed with caution.

Sadly the experiment ended in disaster when the volunteer killed everyone else in the room with a tin cup.

There was a Pitch Black special way back when on scifi, not to mention a number of mini-videos on the Pitch Black website when it first opened. One of them (and possibly the special as well) specifically had to do with a slam DOCTOR shining a prisoners eyes. They even showed part of the "procedure."

SO the quote riddick made about getting a shine job was canon.

Also you guys to no this is derived from a idea in Fallout 3 right? a drug called Cat Eye.
